So well written the characters came to life. The narrator did a great job and one is able to distinguish who is speaking at any time. So many mysteries just when you think you know what happened something else is revealed to make you second guess.
I usually love the long Kate Morton novel, but the details in this book seem to belabor the point beyond being of interest.

This was a fascinating story. I found myself lost in the mystery of motives and longings. Worth the time it took to listen.
This is my second Kate Morton novel. I really enjoy her detailed historical research and how she weaves her story around historical facts.
No, it was drawing out.
Yes it inspired me to organize my closets while listening to this long dragged out story.
I'm sorry I wasted my credits on it !
I'll avoid reading Kate Morton's novels and think twice before listening to Caroline Lee. Although the plot had potential, I felt like I was slogging through an abundant of verbiage to follow the plot. The ending appeared completely unbelievable and the development of specific main characters were not as dynamic to make their actions understandable. Only reason the novel got 2 stars is the plot had me compelled to finish the novel.
Caroline Lee read too slow. To complete the novel, I changed the speed of the narrator.
Many reviews had me believe that I would enjoy this novel. the narrator and author were well matched: Caroline Lee reading too slow and Kate Morton writing too busy saying very little.
I've read this author before and loved her books so purchased this one. However, I maintained interest in the story with difficulty because it moved so slowly.
I liked this story but I was a little disappointed with the ending. I guess I was expecting more of a twist as with The Secret Keepr. Don't get me wrong, the story is well written with well rounded characters and I loved the atmospheric mood but the ending was predictable and so it fell a bit short in the to me.
I am easily amused!
Once again, Kate Morton delivers an epic historical tale with sublime characters and a gorgeous setting and prose beautiful enough to make one weep. Mysteries are unraveled in an unpredictable and delectable fashion. This book moves a little slower than some of the others but that just served to the extend the pleasure.
While the accent of the narrator was more Australian than English, she did a terrific job and enhanced the story with her performance. I own this book in three formats, that's how much I like it!
